The German Heritage Festival is underway in Erie this weekend.

The annual festival got started 23 years ago, at the East Erie Turner's Club, and has gown into a crowd favorite every year.

Located at Saint Nick's Grove, on Old French Road, German Fest includes all the traditional German food, brews, and entertainment...with even more activities for the youngest patrons.   Face painting, bounce houses, train rides, and a magician will delight the kids this year.

German Fest opens Sunday at 11am and runs through the day, until its closing at 6:30pm.
